Far Away Mountain is one of the most remote Lost River Range peaks. It is the 14th-highest Idaho summit and one of the least-climbed 11ers. Despite its remote location, it is a great climb. I think it is best done by backpacking up Dry Creek to the point where the drainage forks at 8,200 feet. There are some great camping spots in this area and the trail is in good shape. Keep in mind that the start of the trail on the North Side of Dry Creek involves driving through a deep stream crossing. It is best to wait until the Spring runoff ends. You also have two wide stream crossings as you hike up the canyon. Since the book was published, climbers have ascended Far Away Mountain from the west via Upper Cedar Creek. USGS Massacre Mountain
